When Judy Brown bought a few “Win $1,000,000 a Year for Life” scratch-off tickets in September, she had no idea she would win a huge “pension” over the next 20 years. But win she did, as the retired nurse scooped the grand prize of $1 million a year for life, which has a guaranteed value of at least $20 million.
Even though she was stunned by her blessings, she already knows what she wants to do with it – share. She is set to receive a million a year which works out to about $530,000 after taxes; her two brothers will each get $63,000 a year. She also wants to return to her hometown of Gouverneur. donate to her church and to the Gouverneur Museum.
Despite the big win she still plays the lottery; in fact she just won another $15.
